Generations of farmers facing difficult times in 2016: Part V

Jimmy Hargett says his son and grandson came to him not long ago and asked him to help them figure out how they could farm in 2016. The experience showed Hargett, who will grow his 55th crop this year, that a younger generation of farmers has not had to deal with back-to-back years of low prices. Hargett gave his thoughts on that situation and other dilemmas facing farmers and their suppliers at the Survival Strategy Summit in Memphis, Tenn.
